ScoMo's China Ban Saved Thousands Of Aussie Lives

How a 'terrible' decision saved thousands of lives in Australia: One of Australia’s leading infectious disease experts has highlighted one move the Australian government made that ultimately prevented a surging coronavirus death toll witnessed in other countries.

Professor Sharon Lewin, head of the Doherty Institute, which has led the way on coronavirus research and worked closely with the government on modelling, said she doesn’t believe Australia’s success is “around good luck”.

She stressed a quick and thorough response from Australia has allowed numbers to stay low in comparison to the rest of the world. She singled out Scott Morrison’s “brilliant” decision to ban any foreign traveller arriving from China, or anyone who had spent any time in the previous two weeks in the country, from February 1, which she believes prevented a widespread outbreak.

Death By Fear & Germs: Unless Govt Kills You First

Being Afraid and Eliminating Exposure to Germs Leads to Death by Fear and Germs: Unless the Government Kills You First.

“Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain.” ~ George Orwell (1961). “1984”

Death is inevitable, so never hide from life, and never allow a moment of life to be taken from you by tyrants. All government is tyrannical, and all government seeks power and control, and today it is using a purposely-created crisis in order to gain that control.

NIH Probing EcoHealth Alliance's Funding To Wuhan Lab

Federal Health Officials Investigating Wuhan Lab, Suspected of Leaking Coronavirus, and millions of dollars US Taxpayer Grants to Lab through NYC-based EcoHealth Alliance.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has informed a company that used a taxpayer grant to provide U.S. tax dollars to the Wuhan lab in China–from which some authorities believe the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic emanated–that the Wuhan lab is formally being investigated by U.S. officials.

A letter from Dr. Michael Lauer, the NIH’s deputy director for extramural research, to Kevin Olival of EcoHealth Alliance and Naomi Schrag of Columbia University, obtained exclusively by Breitbart News, informs them the matter is under investigation.

Belgian Counting All Nursing-home Deaths As COVID

If you come too close you will get shot!
(Social Distancing Belgian Style.)
Despite having only 11 million people, the country has reported more deaths from the disease than China. With some 57 fatalities per 100,000 inhabitants, it has the highest per-capita death rate in the world -- almost four times that of the U.S.

According to Belgian officials, the reason for the grisly figures isn’t overwhelmed hospitals -- 43% of intensive-care beds were vacant even at the peak of the crisis -- but the country’s bureaucratic rigor. Unlike many other countries, the home of the European Union’s top institutions counts deaths at nursing homes even if there wasn’t a confirmed infection.

“We often get criticism -- oh, you’re making Belgium look bad -- we think it’s the opposite,” Steven Van Gucht, head of the viral disease division at the Sciensano public-health institute, said while maintaining the requisite distance of 1.5 meters (5 feet). “If you want to compare our numbers with a lot of other countries, you basically have to cut them in half.”

YouTube Deleted Viral Video Of No-Lockdown Doctors

YouTube Censors Viral Video of Doctors Criticizing ‘Stay-at-Home’ Order. Deleted after racking up over 5 million views. YouTube has censored a viral video in which two doctors criticized the logic of whether California’s stay-at-home coronavirus order is necessary.

The video, which had racked up over 5 million views, featured Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi, co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, Calif. In the clip, Erickson asserts that there is only a “0.03 chance of dying from COVID in the state of California,” prompting him to ask, “Does that necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate people being out of work?”

Erickson also asked why fatalities were being counted as COVID-19 deaths when other ailments were actually more to blame. “When someone dies in this country right now, they’re not talking about the high blood pressure, the diabetes, the stroke. They’re saying ‘Did they die from COVID?'” Erickson said.

Open Up Society Now: Lockdowns Weakening Immunity

Open Up Society Now, Say Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi: Dr. Daniel W. Erickson of Bakersfield, California, is a former emergency-room physician who co-owns, with his partner Dr. Artin Massih, Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield. They are experienced medical professionals who have 40 years of hands-on experience in dealing with viruses and respiratory infections.

Watching the news in China in January, they knew the virus was on its way. They ordered many COVID-19 tests because they knew they would need them. They tested many thousands of people, and discovered for themselves what epidemiologists around the world are saying:  COVID-19 came here earlier than previously believed, is more ubiquitous, and ultimately for the general population less deadly than we thought.

While this realization is gradually dawning on people around the world, they went public with their findings, which are not generated out of a predictive model but rather the actual facts of the case. In the course of their press conference, they addressed the question of whether or not California should have shut down much of its economy. Their answer is no. They conclude with the need to open up immediately, on grounds of health and human rights.

Twitter Jack Dorsey: To Censor Trump's Tweets?

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey proposes editorializing the tweets of world leaders like Trump: Dorsey calls it providing "context that is credible." A handful of companies are controlling the majority of the world’s conversations, subtly introducing rules to close the gap of what ideas they find acceptable and slowly edging out those they don’t.

One of the most prominent ways that tech companies have been doing that, of late, is the result of realizing that they get ample media support and can stay in the good graces of legacy media outlets when they censor content for being “misinformation.” The guise of protecting the world from “misinformation” is fast becoming the easiest justification for censorship online right now.

Twitter has been one of those companies most accused of negatively impacting the public conversation and pushing for censorship. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey talked about this in a livestream with Showtime hosts Desus Nice and The Kid Mero.

North Korea: Fat Kim The Rocket-man Is Dead?

Korean Peninsula expert believes North Korea's Kim Jong Un is dead; pictures, reports flood social media. Unconfirmed reports about North Korea leader Kim Jong Un's death appeared online after China sent doctors to North Korea to help determine his current health status.

While people started sharing unconfirmed reports about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's death news on social media platform after Vice Director of Hong King Satellite TV claimed that the North Korean supreme leader is dead, Korean Peninsula expert and chairman of the board of The World and Northeast Asia Peace Forum expressed that he believes the news may not be fake.

The expert Jang Sung Min revealed that he believes North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un has passed away. As reported by Kuki News, Korean Peninsula expert Jang Sung Min, who is the chairman of the board of WNPF quoted a source revealing that Kim Jong Un is currently in very serious condition. While explaining the situation, he said: Kim Jong Un's health condition is very serious, and just this morning, the North Korean administration came to the conclusion that it will be impossible for him to recover.

Joe Biden: A Finger Rapist & Next US President?

The allegations were leveled earlier this week by a woman named Tara Reade, an apparent supporter of Biden’s primary rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who said she was a staff assistant for Biden in 1993 when he was in the Senate.

Reade has come forward before—last year, when multiple women emerged claiming inappropriate touching by Biden. Reade, at the time, claimed Biden put his hands on her shoulders and rubbed his fingers up and down her neck, but was unable to gain traction on her story aside from an article in a local newspaper.

But this week, Reade told a far more graphic account, with different and more serious details, raising the allegation to the level of sexual assault. Reade’s story first resurfaced in an article in The Intercept. She then was interviewed by podcast host Katie Halper. There, Reade claimed that in 1993, she was asked by a more senior member of Biden’s staff to bring the then-senator his gym bag near the Capitol building, which led to the encounter in question.

One Million+ Demanding Resignation Of WHO Tedros

Petition Demanding Resignation of W.H.O. Chief Passes 1M Signatures: An online petition demanding the resignation of embattled World Health Organization (W.H.O.) chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus over his handling of the global coronavirus pandemic passed one million signatures early Friday morning.

As Breitbart News reported, the campaign calling for an end to the Ethiopian’s controversial reign began on January 31. That’s when the petition titled, “Call for the resignation of Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General,” appeared on, citing Tedros’ refusal on January 23 to designate the Chinese coronavirus a global health emergency.

An anonymous Taiwan activist using the ID “Osuka Yip” launched the call, reflecting global concerns Tedros has been economical with the truth since the deadly virus it was first isolated in the southern Chinese city of Wuhan last November.

Model Has Wuhan Virus For 2 Months Sans Symptoms

A 23-year-old Italian model who was one of the first in her region to be diagnosed with coronavirus is still testing positive for the disease 55 days on.

Biana Dobroiu was hospitalised in the Sant’Orsola hospital in the city of Bologna, in the northern Italian region of Emilia-Romagna, on February 28 with a fever of 40.7C and diagnosed with COVID-19 on the same day. She was discharged on March 6 and told to stay isolated at home as non-serious coronavirus cases were not being treated in hospitals at the time.

Ms Dobroiu, who is a student and model, remained in isolation and continued undergoing regular testing, giving four positive results and one unclear result. Her sixth test last week was also positive, six weeks after her initial diagnosis, and the hospital’s infection expert, Luciano Attard, said the patient was fine, but the tests kept on coming back positive.

Crazy Wuhan Scientists Alter Virus To Infect Humans!

Wuhan laboratory scientists 'did absolutely crazy things' to alter coronavirus and enabled it to infect humans, Russian microbiologist claims: A leading Russian microbiologist has claimed the coronavirus is the result of Wuhan scientists doing 'absolutely crazy things' in their laboratory.

World renowned expert Professor Petr Chumakov claimed their aim was to study the pathogenicity of the virus and not 'with malicious intent' to deliberately create a manmade killer. Professor Chumakov, chief researcher at the Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology in Moscow, said: 'In China, scientists at the Wuhan Laboratory have been actively involved in the development of various coronavirus variants for over ten years.

'Moreover, they did this, supposedly not with the aim of creating pathogenic variants, but to study their pathogenicity. World renowned expert Professor Petr Chumakov (pictured) claimed their aim was to study the pathogenicity of the virus and not 'with malicious intent' to deliberately create a manmade killer.

Infect Everyone: Indians Will Inherit The Earth!

India has most youthful population on earth and if virus
kills all the world oldies Indians will inherit the earth.
Letting virus spread less costly than lockdowns, and young population means not as many deaths as European nations: Controversial given the high risk of deaths, a coronavirus strategy discarded by the U.K. is being touted as the solution for poor but young countries like India.

Herd immunity, which allows a majority of the population to gain resistance to the virus by becoming infected and then recovering, could result in less economic devastation and human suffering than restrictive lockdowns designed to stop its spread, according to a growing group of experts.

“No country can afford a prolonged period of lockdowns, and least of all a country like India,” said Jayaprakash Muliyil, a prominent Indian epidemiologist. “You may be able to reach a point of herd immunity without infection really catching up with the elderly. And when the herd immunity reaches a sufficient number the outbreak will stop, and the elderly are also safe.”

A team of researchers at Princeton University and the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics and Policy, a public health advocacy group based in New Delhi and Washington, has identified India as a place where this strategy could be successful because its disproportionately young population would face less risk of hospitalization and death.

Herd Immunity: Only Cure For Wuhan Virus?

What is herd immunity? Alongside reverse quarantine, it can be only cure for Coronavirus: Whether you want it or not, herd immunity through natural course of the virus spread will happen sooner than the onset of same result through universal vaccination.

A lot is being written about herd immunity, even as the death toll from coronavirus infection has crossed 150,000. There is no cheersome update on the early arrival of a vaccine and there is obviously a lockdown fatigue across the world with billions of people straining at the leash.

So, is herd immunity the final, long-term cure for Covid-19? There are arguments on both sides of the question. The supporters say the virus spread will dwindle when a significant portion of humans become immune to it in the natural course. Those who oppose the theory say thousands of vulnerable people will die as the virus travels through and disappears.

However, it appears that whether you want it or not, herd immunity through natural course of the virus spread will happen sooner than the onset of the same result achieved by the universal application of an effective vaccine.

US Confirms Full-scale Investigation Of Wuhan Lab

The U.S. is conducting a full-scale investigation into whether the novel coronavirus, which went on to morph into a global pandemic that has brought the global economy to its knees, escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China, Fox News has learned.

Intelligence operatives are said to be gathering information about the laboratory and the initial outbreak of the virus. Intelligence analysts are piecing together a timeline of what the government knew and “creating an accurate picture of what happened,” the sources said.

Once that investigation is complete -- something that is expected to happen in the near-term -- the findings will be presented to the Trump administration. At that point White House policymakers and President Trump will use the findings to determine how to hold the country accountable for the pandemic.

Virus Killed 25% Of Flushing Nursing Home Residents?

A New York City nursing home at the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak confirmed Thursday that 29 of its residents have died, but workers at the facility say there are more.

In a statement to NBC News, Michael Balboni, the Executive Director of Greater New York Health Care Facilities Association/Consultant to Sapphire Center, confirmed 29 residents at Sapphire Center, a rehabilitation and nursing facility in Flushing, Queens, died between March 1 and April 15.

"Within that timetable if it is 29 dead it is a tragedy and everyone is a life but during a pandemic like this it would not be an aberration," he said. "It is a very trying time for a long term facility." However, workers at the 227-bed facility told The New York Times it's possible that as many as 60 residents have died.

Balboni insisted that PPEs are not an issue, adding that the New York City Department of Health officials were at the center on Thursday and found no issues. "As stunning and shocking as these numbers are we will see more of this at assisted living facilities. This is a cruel disease the targets the elderly and the infirm," Balboni continued.

Packed Queens: World's Hardest-hit by Wuhan Virus?

Bodies are kept in freezer-truck morgues in Queens, NYC.
(NEW YORK) — The coronavirus pandemic has touched every part of New York City, but new data shows it is hitting especially hard in neighborhoods that tend to be poorer and might be more likely to have many people living under one roof.

Data released late Wednesday by city health officials show that residents in the immigrant-rich Jackson Heights, Elmhurst and Corona sections of Queens have tested positive for the virus in far greater numbers and at higher rates per capita than in wealthy, mostly white parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn.

People living in one Queens zip code just south of LaGuardia Airport were roughly four times as likely to have tested positive as people in the gentrified section of Brooklyn that Mayor Bill de Blasio calls home. The numbers back something that has, for days, seemed obvious at Elmhurst Hospital, the only major medical center serving that part of Queens where infections are most prevalent.

Lockdown Rebellion: Trump Calls to Liberate 3 States

Donald Trump urges supporters to 'liberate' states, encouraging protests against coronavirus restrictions: A day after laying out a road map to gradually reopen the crippled economy, Mr Trump took to Twitter with the kind of rhetoric some of his supporters have used in demanding the lifting of the orders that have thrown millions of Americans out of work.

"Liberate Minnesota!" "liberate Michigan!" "liberate Virginia," he said in a tweet-storm in which he also lashed out at New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for criticising the federal response. 

Mr Trump has repeatedly expressed his desire to see businesses reopen quickly and claimed earlier this week that he had total authority over the matter, even though the lockdowns and other social-distancing measures had been imposed by state and local leaders, not Washington.

The shutdowns have inflicted heavy damage on economies around the world. In the US, the crisis has cost at least 22 million Americans their jobs, pushing the unemployment rate toward levels not seen since the Great Depression.

Old State Dept. Cables Warned Of Wuhan Lab Leaks

State Department cables warned of safety issues at Wuhan lab studying bat coronaviruses: Two years before the novel coronavirus pandemic upended the world, U.S. Embassy officials visited a Chinese research facility in the city of Wuhan several times and sent two official warnings back to Washington about inadequate safety at the lab, which was conducting risky studies on coronaviruses from bats.

The cables have fuelled discussions inside the U.S. government about whether this or another Wuhan lab was the source of the virus — even though conclusive proof has yet to emerge. In January 2018, the U.S. Embassy in Beijing took the unusual step of repeatedly sending U.S. science diplomats to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), which had in 2015 become China’s first laboratory to achieve the highest level of international bioresearch safety (known as BSL-4).

WIV issued a news release in English about the last of these visits, which occurred on March 27, 2018. The U.S. delegation was led by Jamison Fouss, the consul general in Wuhan, and Rick Switzer, the embassy’s counselor of environment, science, technology and health. Last week, WIV erased that statement from its website, though it remains archived on the Internet.

Pentagon: Corona Virus Could Be From Wuhan Lab

Joint Chiefs chairman: U.S. intel investigating whether coronavirus leaked from Wuhan lab. U.S. intelligence agencies are investigating whether the coronavirus may have leaked from a Chinese laboratory in Wuhan, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Tuesday.

Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, the nation’s most senior military officer, told reporters at the Pentagon the initial assessments indicate the coronavirus causing the global pandemic appears to have been a “natural” event arising from animal-to-human transmission. However, he noted published reports that the origin may have occurred as an escape from a research laboratory.

“It should be no surprise that we’ve taken a keen interest in that and we’ve had a lot of intelligence [agencies] take a hard look at that,” Gen. Milley said. “I would just say at this point it’s inconclusive although the weight of evidence seems to indicate natural. But we don’t know for certain.”

US Moratorium On Gain-of-Function Research (2014)

In the wake of a handful of biosafety lapses at federal research facilities, the US government is temporarily halting funding for new studies aiming to give novel functions to influenza, SARS, and MERS viruses.

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and Department of Health and Human Services last week (October 17) announced it was launching a detailed review into so-called gain-of-function research, in which pathogens are manipulated to alter their capabilities.

Such research made headlines in 2012 after two groups (Yoshihiro Kawaoka's at University of Wisconson-Madison and Ron Fouchier's at Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands) instilled the avian influenza virus H5N1 with the ability to transmit between ferrets through the air—a feat that prompted a year-long moratorium on H5N1 research.

WHO Echoed China's Denial Of Human-to-Human Spread

WHO Official Says She Suspected Human-To-Human COVID-19 Transmission ‘Right From The Start’ — But The WHO Echoed Misleading Chinese Claims To The Contrary For Weeks: A World Health Organization official said Monday that she suspected human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus “right from the start,” beginning on Dec. 31, 2019.

But WHO officials (led by DG Dr. Tedros) echoed Chinese authorities and denied any suggestion of human-to-human transmission for weeks after Dec. 31. Chinese doctors, meanwhile, were reported to have known for weeks prior that the virus could be transmitted between humans.

“Right from the start, from the first notification we received on the 31st of December, given that this was a cluster of pneumonia — I’m a MERS specialist, so my background is in coronaviruses and influenza — so immediately thought, given that this is a respiratory pathogen, that of course there may be human-to-human transmission,” Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove said in a press briefing Monday.

Trump's Stunning Action: No Funding For WHO!

Trump cuts off U.S. funding to WHO, pending review: President Trump said the U.S. will stop funding to the World Health Organization while his administration reviews its role in “mismanaging” the coronavirus.

He said the U.S. contributes up to $400 million while superpowers like China, where the outbreak began, contribute closer to $40 million. “The United States has a duty to insist on full accountability,” Mr. Trump said.

He cited the WHO’s lack of pushback to Beijing’s foggy reporting on the virus in the early going, saying it cost the rest of the world valuable time. He also blasted the WHO’s opposition to bans on travel from China, accusing it of putting “political correctness above life-saving measures.”

Shi Zhengli: Evil Scientist Created The Corona Virus?

Shi Zhengli was born in May 1964 in Xixia County, Henan, China. She graduated from Wuhan University in 1987. She received her master's degree from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 1990 and her Ph.D. from Montpellier  University in France in 2000.

In 2005, a team led by Shi Zhengli found that the SARS virus originated in bats. The results were published in Science in 2005 and Journal of General Virology in 2006.

In 2015, Shi Zhengli was involved in an investigation of bat coronaviruses, specifically gain of function experiments involving both the SARS and bat coronaviruses, a joint research of University of North Carolina and Wuhan Institute of Virology, with Ralph S. Baric as principal investigator

The 2015 Gain-of-Function experiment by Shi and others was famously known to have created a so-called Chimeric or Hybrid Virus and a version of which was believed to have been leaked (either accidentally or deliberately) from Shi's main lab the Wuhan Institute of Virology in late 2019. That lethal and extremely contagious virus is now called COVID-19 a.k.a. Wuhan Corona Virus.

That same year the generous funding for the project in the US had been paused due to the moratorium on risky (Gain-of-Function) virology studies with influenza, MERS & SARS viruses, announced by the US government that year. But it is obvious now that despite US Moratorium Chinese Communist Party let the Chinese scientists to continue extremely dangerous G-o-F experiments.

Shi Zhengli: The Chinese virologist was 'silenced'?

China, the epicentre of fatal global pandemic Coronavirus, battling the conspiracy theories related to the origin and spread of the virus, has been accused of 'silencing' a Wuhan-based virologist, Shi Zhengli, soon after she discovered the genetic composition of the new strain.

Known as the 'Bat Woman' Zhengli, the virologist is considered as one of the world's top researchers on coronavirus and has successfully found dozens of deadly SARS-like viruses in bat caves. Her timely discovery of the new strain could have helped in the early development of the diagnostic tests and vaccines for the virus-related disease.

Having an experience of 16 years in hunting viruses in bat caves, Shi, a researcher at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), found that the SARS virus originated in bats. According to the South China Morning Post, the data and samples collected by Shi and her team was brought back to the Wuhan based National Biosafety Laboratory.

Shi Zhengli: Bat-Woman From The Wuhan Lab

BEIJING—The mysterious patient samples arrived at Wuhan Institute of Virology at 7 P.M. on December 30, 2019. Moments later, Shi Zhengli’s cell phone rang. It was her boss, the institute’s director.

The Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention had detected a novel coronavirus in two hospital patients with atypical pneumonia, and it wanted Shi’s renowned laboratory to investigate.

If the finding was confirmed, the new pathogen could pose a serious public health threat—because it belonged to the same family of bat-borne viruses as the one that caused severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), a disease that plagued 8,100 people and killed nearly 800 of them between 2002 and 2003.

“Drop whatever you are doing and deal with it now,” she recalls the director saying. Shi—a virologist who is often called China’s “bat woman” by her colleagues because of her virus-hunting expeditions in bat caves over the past 16 years—walked out of the conference she was attending in Shanghai and hopped on the next train back to Wuhan.

Singapore Seals Packed Foreign Workers Dormitories

Singapore was one of the first countries to get a handle on the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus, but now the island is on lockdown. The city-state with a population of roughly 6 million people recorded its first case on Jan. 23 when a 66-year-old man who had traveled into the city from Wuhan tested positive.

The number of confirmed cases spiked quickly after, and the country became one of the world's first major hotspots until mid-February, when the number of recovered patients in the city-state was outpacing new ones. News outlets all over the world pointed to Singapore as one of the few places in the world able to quickly and effectively stop the spread of the virus.

In a March 19 article published by global news outlet The Conversation titled, "Why Singapore’s coronavirus response worked – and what we can all learn," Dale Fisher, chair of infection control at the National University Hospital of Singapore, praised Singapore's COVID-19 response as a "model" for the world.

May Day: Trump To Reopen The US Economy By May-1

Donald Trump Pressing to Reopen U.S. by May 1: President Donald Trump wants to reopen the country by May 1, according to a report in the Washington Post.

The president remains reluctant to publicly set a date, but the Post cites anonymous sources that say behind the scenes, Trump is telling advisers that May 1 is the day that Americans should be allowed to return to work.

On Wednesday, Trump declined to give an “aspirational” date, noting that he was immediately criticized for hoping the country would reopen by Easter. “I said it would be very tough, and I was criticized for that, so I don’t like giving dates,” he said on Wednesday during the White House press briefing, but he added, “I think we will be sooner rather than later.”

The Crimes of Ethiopian Communist Tedros Adhanom

WHO’s Tedros Adhanom Should be put on Trial for Crimes Against Humanity: Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, as well as being the first WHO director without a medical degree, also has a somewhat political background compared to his predecessors. On his online biography, the WHO lays out his qualifications as Ethiopian Minister of Health from 2002 to 2012, impressive stuff.

Aside from his medical credentials, Tedros happens to be a member of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) which is an organisation about as peaceful as its name suggests. Founded as a communist revolutionary party that came to power in 1991, it led a guerrilla campaign against the Mengistu dictatorship and formed a coalition with two other ethnic parties after his exile.

Over time, the TPLF began to exert more and more influence over the other two parties. Most military generals and key leaders within the government are Tigray, including the Prime Minister who ruled the country for 21 years before his death. The Tigray represent only 6% of the population of Ethiopia, one of the major ethnic groups are the Amhara who mostly made up the Mengistu regime.

Chinese Fuck With Bats: Bats Fuck Chinese, and Us Too

(Wuhan Virus Outbreak proves we should leave the BATs alone, especially the Cave Ones.)

When I was growing up, in a little island town called Mawgyun in the Irrawaddy Delta of Burma, the fruit bats or flying foxes were all over the town. Thousands and thousands of them bats flying out at dusk just after sunset to feed on the fruit trees in the jungle beyond the town or the mango and guava and Jack-fruit groves on the town's outskirt and flying back into the town to sleep hanging upside down at dawn just before the sunrise.

What I still remember is they were so discrete flying in and out we saw them only when they were  asleep hanging on the huge trees when we children woke up and came outside to go to school or to play. There was a couple of huge koke-ko trees by the wide road just outside of our house and the bats were all hanging upside down quietly on the high branches during the days.

When I was growing up we boys were quite rough and brutal as any semi-rural boy would be in that part of  primitive world. Civil war was raging around us and most of the adults like my grown-up cousins and uncles from the town's People Militia (Pyi-thu-sit) were armed with ubiquitous .303 Lee-Enfield rifles ready to fight the insurgents from the Communist villages or the Karen ethnic villages.

China Cremated Alive The Wuhan Virus Victims?

Wuhan Funeral Homes Burned Coronavirus Victims Alive: Locals in Wuhan, where the Chinese coronavirus pandemic originated, have heard screams coming from funeral home furnaces, and some treated in hospitals say they saw workers put living coronavirus patients in body bags, Radio Free Asia (RFA) reported on Monday.

RFA noted that it could not independently verify that the Chinese Communist Party was burning coronavirus patients alive, nor has the Communist Party confirmed or denied the rumors. Yet the rumors persist that, to make room for new patients in Wuhan’s overcrowded hospitals, medical staff chose older patients less likely to survive the infection and shipped them to incinerators while they were still alive and conscious.

RFA quoted a source “close to the funeral industry” identified only as Ma who said that he had heard reports of “people restrained and forced into body bags when they were still moving.” “Some people are saying that … there are video clips of screams coming from funeral homes, from inside the furnaces … which tells us that some people were taken to the funeral homes while they were still alive,” Ma added.

Trump Slams WHO "China-Centric": Funding Cut?

President Trump slammed the World Health Organization (WHO) for its "China-centric" views Tuesday, adding that the global health agency's projections and pronouncements about the coronavirus pandemic has been routinely wrong.

In an interview with Fox News' "Hannity," Trump said that the WHO had "strongly recommended" against America restricting travel from China, one of their earliest flawed pronouncements. 

"The W.H.O. really blew it. For some reason, funded largely by the United States, yet very China centric. We will be giving that a good look. Fortunately I rejected their advice on keeping our borders open to China early on. Why did they give us such a faulty recommendation?" Trump also tweeted in early morning April-8.

"The World Health [Organization] -- very China-centric as I say --  basically everything was very positive for China," Trump told host Sean Hannity. "Don't close your borders, they strongly recommended ... That would've been a disaster, that would've been a total disaster. And literally, they called every shot wrong," the president added. "They didn't want to say where [coronavirus] came from. For many years, we've been funding the World Health Organization."

No Lockdown In Sweden: Everything Is Awesome!

We should all move to Awesome Sweden!
Sweden is adopting a 'flexible' coronavirus response and betting on 'social obedience': Jens Magnusson can continue with his daily life relatively undisturbed. If he wants to. Under the COVID-19 tackling approach taken by the Swedish Government, he can go to the gym, meet friends at a bar and join a bootcamp in park.

Sweden has so far recorded more than 400 coronavirus deaths — about 10 times as many as Australia. Its population is around half that of Australia. But its Government is standing by its relatively relaxed approach to the pandemic. Rather than telling people what to do — or, worse, telling them off — the Government is asking Swedes to do the right thing, and giving them the liberty to prove they are responsible citizens.

While the Government has taken some measures, such as limiting social gatherings to 50 people and closing high schools and universities, experts say it is betting on Sweden's "social obedience". But that's a lot of trust to put in your people at a time of global pandemic, and a gamble that could have catastrophic consequences.
